UFC London 2022: fight card, UK time, odds, tickets and how to watch Tom Aspinall vs Curtis Blaydes

Tom Aspinall and Paddy Pimblett will star in UFC London this weekend after enjoying victories in March’s edition.

UFC will return to London this weekend for the second time in four months after March’s thriller that broke Fight Night and O2 Arena records.

Tom Aspinall is set to take up a main event feature in the English capital after enjoying a first-round submission of Alexander Volkov last time out, with Curtis Blaydes preparing to take on the Manchester-born fighter.

Paddy Pimblett will also return to the Octagon after ending March’s edition as the name on everyone’s lips - facing up to Jordan Leavitt in what he will hope will be his fifth consecutive win.
